Overseas Update

Tom Abell web

A number of our players have been in action recently as they prepare for the new season with their overseas clubs.

Let’s take a look at how they have been getting on.

Tom Abell

Our new Specsavers County Championship captain Tom Abell played a starring role for Fremantle at the weekend.

On Saturday the 22 year old made 120 before being run out batting at No. 3 against Scarborough on the first day of their game.  The following day he was in action again in the final of the Western Australia Premier T20 competition against Gosnells.

Tom was named Man of the Match after taking two for 22 from his four overs and making 59 not out off 39 balls to help steer Freemantle to a four wicket win off the penultimate ball.

Eddie Byrom

Eddie is currently in New Zealand where he is spending the winter playing in Christchurch.

The 19 year old, who was awarded a Somerset Scholarship after graduating through the Academy last summer, scored an unbeaten 88 off 51 balls for his club side Riccarton in a Twenty20 match recently.

Talking about his time out in New Zealand so far Eddie said: “It’s been a great experience so far.  I’m currently training with the Canterbury A team as well as with my club team.  It’s been great to be able to work on things during the week and have actual match practice to put training into match scenarios.

“Personally my scores have been a bit up and down.  It’s been great to have to adapt to wickets that may be slightly different from what I’m used to and these experiences only make you grow as a player.

“It’s also been great living in New Zealand from a personal development point of view and learning new ways of the world  as I progress out of my teenage years.”
